— Elvis Escobar’s walkoff single gave Altoona (61-57) a 3-2 win in the first game of their doubleheader with Trenton. With the game tied, 2-2, Wyatt Mathisen led off the bottom of the seventh with a triple. Trenton walked the bases loaded to face Escobar, who foiled the strategy by lining a single to right. Mitch Keller made his second AA start, going six innings and allowing two runs on five hits. Keller didn’t walk anybody and fanned nine. He took a shutout into the sixth, but gave up a pair of RBI hits with two out.

Mathisen: 1-2, 3B, BB

— The GCL Pirates (15-27) broke a four-game losing streak with a 3-2 win over the Braves. Second-round pick Steven Jennings threw the first two innings. He ran into some trouble after getting two quick outs in the first, as he started falling behind hitters and getting hit hard when he got too much of the plate. Three hits and a walk led to two runs. He had an easier second inning, giving up just a bunt hit. Jennings may or may not have come out at that point due to being hit on the leg with a grounder on the last play in the top of the second, although he looked fine immediately afterward. Jennings threw his fastball 90-91 mph and had some stretches where he was missing with it, although not badly. He was also missing with his curve and slider. Claudio Scotti and Samuel Reyes, younger brother of infielder Pablo Reyes, combined for seven scoreless, two-hit innings in relief. Calvin Mitchell went 2-4 and Victor Ngoepe 2-3.

Mason Martin: 1-4
Rodolfo Castro: 0-4
Jeremias Portorreal: 1-3

— The DSL Pirates (33-27) lost to the Rays2, 7-5. The Pirates had nine walks but only four hits.

Jean Eusebio: 1-3, 2 BB
Francisco Acuna: 0-2, 2 BB
Sherten Apostel: 1-4, BB
